part in that neighborhood. lastly, balboa park has significantly fewer impact fees. most of that area is actually public land so there's not a significant amount of new development, new private develop. that's forecasted there, but there has been one significant development there, the 1150 ocean avenue project where the new whole foods is and they built as part of their in kind agreement, they built an extension of this street here which will connect to the puc reservoir should it ever been developed in the future and they also have a pedestrian easement on another street through the project. those are just a few of the highlights. again, that's not everything that's in the plan. next year we will expect to incorporate the transit center district plan as well as the western soma which is currently before the board and the intention there is to roll that into the overall eastern neighborhoods implementation process, not to treat it separately but to look at the impact fee revenue and the projects sort of simultaneously and then at the cac as well. thank you, i'm happy to answer any q

of characters. lastly, i think if they would have depicted waterboarding and torture as we did it, and as it was pointed out as we did it would have been clinical and hospital-like city with medical technicians and a guerney. you can't have a heroic movie that depicts it as it actually happened. >> cenk: that's interesting. glenn, you've been a critic of the movie and kathryn bigelow said, sharply on the facts and on the intelligence and doubtless that debate will continue. is that accurate, and after having watched the movie are any of your concerns allayed? >> nobody has a lower opinion of "zero dark thirty" and of kathryn bigelow than i have. i think the movie is it horrendous on every level, even sin matcally it's a ridiculous film. given that i'm shocked about how transparent idiotic and absurd her defense of this film. what she said is what she has been saying everywhere she goes, as michael said, to depict torture is not to endorse it. of course we have to include it in the film since agrees it happened. not a single person has objected to the depiction of torture in "zero
difficult to prove. la lastly mr. obama said this. >> in the month since 20 precious children and six brave adults were violently taken from us, more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the end of a gun. >> reporter: this statement is wrong. the number is much higher. according to the cdc 900 people are murdered on average every month in the u.s. by firearms. but 2,700 are killed by a gun every single month. but here is the caveat. the vast majority of those deaths, about 63%, come from suicide or accidental death. now to widen the scope of this discussion, violent crime over the last 20 years nationally has fallen by a massive amount, 50%. technically america is much safer now statistically than it's been in decades. but controlling the crime rate is not the underlying goal of the president norv congress. it's preventing more newtowns from ever happening again and there is some evidence to suggest a weapons assault ban could achieve that end. i am sam brock and that is today's reality check. >> now you can watch the full video on our website, nbcbayarea.com. coverage o

, it's not high among them. this is a play for our emotions and we need to see that as such and lastly during his speech today the issue of gun control shouldn't be a divisive one. wait a minute, for obama to sermonize about the problems of divisiveness, like john edwards sermonizing to us about the problems of, well, infidelity. plain hypocritical. and former fox advisor contributor, karl rove. >> good to be back. >> sean: first of all, i'm watching obama, you're watching obama. different guy in the second term? >> more confrontational, more aggressive, more focused on the politics of it and less focused on the purpose of it. we saw that today with his announcement. i mean, you know, this is supposed to be done to prevent another newtown, but take a look at the three big legislative things he's suggesting, universal background check, wait a minute, the weapons used in newtown were bought with a background check by the killer's mother. not going to stop newtown. unworkable, even he admits you look in the fine language, well, we're not going to require background check for the sale of w

a great connection the. >> sorry, bill. we apologize for all the issues. i lastly wanted to ask you about banker pay. compensation is in focus here. does it need to be reformed? if so, how? >> i think i heard you talking about compensation and the fact that we are not regulating it properly. and it's still too high. i don't know that i agree w that. i think we have made significant reforms in the way executives are compensated. sitting on the board of a bank, i can tell you that the directors are very much involved as are the regulators in terms of how the campaign plan operates and try to get some of the incentives for risk taking out of that system, fallbacks and things like that. so i think that we have reformed the compensation system. >> okay. we'll leave it there in part because of our technical troubles. bill isaac is head of global financial institutions. we're going to try to work on that connection, bill, and come back to you in just a couple of minutes. >> yeah. we'll try and fix it. and as the dreamliner joins us with a virtual nightmare, phil lebeau joins us right after this
